This project uses a custom assimilator for results. This assimilator, besides assimilating, has a new credit awarding algorithm.
Credit will not be awarded during validation, but later during assimilation of the batch.
Credit will be granted based on the number of Latin squares processed. The multiplier was selected in accordance with credit guidelines of Berkeley. The rate is:
0.000539 credit per DLS
plus 1 credit flat per task.

Please note that this is not set in stone. It is possible to change it, if there is interest from crunchers.

Is there any estimate how long this usually takes? Several days, weeks or months?

First, this thread is not relevant to currently running tasks (tot5_), and I have not updated it yet.
Still, credit is assigned during the combined process of validation and assimilation. Usually it does not take more than a hour. But there were problems recently and the backlog has grown substantially. Now that assimilator is running again, it should catch up. I could speed it up, but it would freeze the scheduler.
I checked just now and something else broke, so the assimilator is down again :( sorry.

Nothing got validated since ~3 days, that's why I asked that question.

You are just unlucky that your tasks were not picked up yet. Lot of them were, I can see it in the logs. Do not worry: it is progressing and it will catch up eventually. Usually, when there are no problems, it takes less than a hour (10 minutes)
